Unorganized Mandis in India
October 17, 2017
Everyone sees what you appear to be. But a visit to Indian sabzi mandis can make your stomach churn. An unbearable miasma of rotting vegetables will welcome you to the mandi. And if that doesn’t put you off , paddling through sludge and muck certainly will. And after this hardship when you make it to your grocer, you find a swarm of flies comfortably settled on fruits and vegetables.
It’s a tad risk to buy fruits and vegetables from such markets because chances of contamination are high. These unhygienic conditions of market can cause various gastrointestinal diseases to the buyers and sellers as well. Flies transmit infections. Sometimes fruits and vegetables can contain larvae and maggots causing faecal-oral diseases like diarrhoea , dysentery, cholera and typhoid.
Often we don’t have any alternative hence we end up buying these vegetables. But nothing looks as good as healthy feels. And anything that costs you is too expensive. Vegetables can be kept organised. The waste can be used to make compost. Organic waste can be used effectively if daily cleaning is done.
At Agrowave we are focused to give justice to the farmers who sit up all night with rough hands and tanned bodies.
